I always love a good Ofcom Broadcast Bulletin. I have to say though, the standards complaints are usually far more interesting than the fairness and privacy section.
That is not the case this issue, with a certain Miss Zoe Alexander - a contestant on The X Factor - complaining about her portrayal on the show:
By way of background, Miss Alexander said there was clear evidence of computer generated imagery (“CGI”) being used. For example, there was “contradictory lighting of figures in the same camera shots”; there was footage of “incomplete figures and unattached body parts”; use of plasma fractals resulted in “partial face masks/security staff were deleted”; “physically impossible scenes” of Miss Alexander and her father were included; “unequally pixellated figures in same shot”; Miss Alexander’s voice was “auto-tuned out of recognition”.
